Office of Student Engagement

Community Service

The Office of Student Engagement is committed to uniting campus and community in meaningful service.


Whether your passion is helping animals (Animal Impact), saving the environment (Student Environmental Alliance), promoting equality and LGBT rights (EROS), working with children (Caring for Kids), building houses for those in need (Habitat for Humanity), or community service in general (Service Council), Washington College has a club for you! 

Beyond the clubs themselves, OSE offers a wide range of club and community partnerships to provide students with the opportunity to participate in service work they’re passionate about.

Our core community partners include:

Kent Food Pantry

Kent County Schools

Habitat for Humanity

Why get involved?


There are many reasons to get involved in community service.  Here are just a few:

  • Make a positive difference in the lives of others.
  • Meet people who share your interests.
  • Develop leadership skills by planning service projects or becoming a club officer.
  • Build your resume (being actively involved in service work looks really good to potential employers!).
  • Network with community leaders and nonprofit organizations.
  • Have rewarding and fun experiences!

How to get involved?


At Washington College, we care about finding community service opportunities that appeal to you.

If you have an idea for an event or want to raise awareness about a certain issue, we would love to help make that happen! Or, if you want more help finding a service project, please reach out to us. 

Don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions, comments, or ideas you may have.

Feel free to stop by the Office of Student Engagement, in the first floor of Hodson (across from Java George), to inquire further about community service opportunities.
